South Carroll, Vosloh pound Linganore, 4-0

October 14, 1994|By Bill Free | Bill Free,Sun Staff Writer

An uptight South Carroll girls soccer team found the perfect cure for a mid-season slump last night.

A malfunctioning public address system that had a man speaking Spanish instead of playing the national anthem before a Central Maryland Conference game against Linganore provided just the right medicine for the eighth-ranked Cavaliers, said coach Jim Horn.

"We've been frustrated and too tight," said Horn.

"And we've been needing something to shake us out of it. When that guy began speaking Spanish while we were waiting to hear the national anthem, we all broke up. It just seemed to be the right thing to loosen us up."

South Carroll went out and totally dominated the Lancers on the way to a 4-0 victory at South Carroll.

The Cavaliers (8-1 overall, 2-1 in the CMC) bolted to a 3-0 lead at halftime and could have been leading at least 6-0 with a couple of breaks.

There was one questionable call that took a penalty kick away from South Carroll in the first half and a couple of Cavaliers' shots that just missed by inches of going in the net.

Carroll County's all-time leading scorer Amber Clutter (65 goals) and her first cousin, Lindsey Vosloh, spent the first half attacking Linganore goalkeeper Erin Bradshaw to set up numerous opportunities.

L Vosloh, only a sophomore, wound up the night with two goals.

Sophomore defender Michele Mitchell scored first for South Carroll, hitting the net from 15 yards out off a pass from Anne Schaeffer just two minutes into the game for a 1-0 lead.

Then Clutter made it 2-0 at the 21-minute mark when she scored from in front of the net off a ball that had been bobbled by Bradshaw on a save off a corner kick.

Two minutes later, it was Vosloh scoring on a fast break off a pass from Danielle Picker for the 3-0 lead at halftime. South Carroll wound up with a 9-0 edge in shots in the first half against the Lancers (5-3-1, 2-2).

Linganore only got off one shot in the second half, giving Cavaliers' goalkeeper Kendra Pulis an easy night.

Pulis recorded the 20th save of her career, surpassing the previous Carroll County girls mark of 19 by Kara Hedges of Westminster.

The final shot total was 14-1 in favor of South Carroll, leaving Linganore coach Jim Fitzpatrick very impressed.

"They have so many people who can score and they have so much more speed than we have," said Fitzpatrick. "We're not as bad as we looked tonight and they're as good as they looked. Lindsey Vosloh had a super game for them and we all knew

about Amber Clutter. But there is no way you can concentrate too much on Amber because they have other people who can hurt you."

Clutter said the Cavaliers are beginning to show some life after the loss to Liberty last week.

"We did some good things tonight and Lindsey was super all night long," said Clutter. "They were pretty rough on me but nothing was called."
